you can have one source xml file, one stylesheet (xalan specific) and multiple
output files with just one run.

Yeah. Boy, was I surprised when I saw that main index.html is not backed by
xml file :)

I was thinking about separate index.xsl, and then (pseudo diff notation):

  <!-- English -->
  <target name="en">
    <antcall target="xslt">
      <param name="lang" value="en" />
      <param name="input_ext" value=".xml" />
      <param name="output_ext" value=".html.en" />
+   <antcall target="index">
+     <param name="lang" value="en" />
+   </antcall>

...or something along those lines.

please expect patches coming in-not-so-distant future :)
